The city of Canton, Ohio has both that big city feel and the little town quaintness that is a draw to many people.  Though there are many things to do within the city's limits, a calm drive through the country is only minutes away. Just 60 miles South of Cleveland, the city of Canton has been a source of major industry and entertainment to Northeast Ohio for many years. Founded in 1805, this city's growth is due largely to the introduction of major manufacturers and railroads to the area. The city has grown into more than just an industrial powerhouse, however, as sports, culture, entertainment, and diversity in business are all flourishing in the city. Canton also happens to be the home several celebrities, including three Pulitzer Prize winning journalists, many Olympic and professional athletes, and also famous movie and television stars and producers.
